13 Jul (Fri): Talk on "The Natural and Recent History of Singapore's Wild Pigs"

Singapore’s largest surviving land mammal, the Eurasian wild pig, has hogged the limelight recently. They are increasingly crossing paths with neighbouring primate species (ie. humans). How did they come to be common again after a brief extirpation from our forests? Will they disrupt the ecology of our remaining primary forests? Hear what Yong Ding Li has to say. He is the co-author of the 2010 review of mainland Singapore’s wild boars. He is also an avid Suidae enthusiast. Ding Li will enlighten us on the current knowledge on pig ecology, distribution and poaching evidence, as well as explore how wild pigs may be conserved in the future.

This talk is open to the public.
